Shirts don’t have to just be for the office. This season they have undergone a make over and are slaying A/W. The statement garment is a must for this season, whether it’s silk, floral, pyjamas style or oversized it will honestly be the most versatile piece you will buy for your wardrobe. I follow some amazing bloggers that can take one shirt and style it several ways, whether they have a day of meetings, they are heading to London Fashion Week or are just “doing it for the gram” they know how to work it. But how do us non travelling, every day shift goers get that instagramable look? I have challenged myself to style one shirt several different ways. The reason I want to show you this is because it’s all about making the most out of the clothes you have. Everyone wishes they had a limitless credit card that you would never have to pay back but unfortunately that is not the case so it’s all about styling your clothes in different ways to give you a different look each time.
How do I style them?
This little shirt is from Zara, (third shirt on the top row) I loved the oriental floral print complimented with the black piping. I bought the XS in this little number, firstly because it wasn’t a petite shirt, and secondly because I found it quite a big fit anyway so I was still able to get that oversized look. Ok, so each look isn’t miles different from each other but I’ve done simple little tweeks to each one for a different look each time. My first look I layered a little black bralet underneath, left the shirt unbottoned and tied it at the bottom. I thought this was so sassy and a fab Saturday night outfit teamed with a pair of wide leg trousers or culottes. I just think the shirt and bralet have enough detail to allow you to have a plain bottom, keeping the look really classy. This next one, keeping with the layered look. Instead of tying the ends, I buttoned the last couple of buttons and tucked it into my jeans. This is more of a sleeker look, I think this would be fab with high waisted jeans and some tassel ear-rings. Fab for going for drinks with the girls. Next up I went for a more casual look, buttoning up the shirt, and added some stacking necklaces (Primark). Because it’s like a pyjama style shirt it has a fab lapel collard neckline so you will always have that relaxed open shirt vibe. I thought about teaming this look with some vintage high waisted boyfriend jeans and trainers for a really chilled out, relaxed look. The next style option for this little shirt is seriously sassy, fully opened and tucked in to keep the “girls” enclosed. I love this look, and think it would look amazing if styled right. Imagine a wine or even a cream pair of wide leg trousers that nip you in at the waist giving you an amazing silhouette and a fab classy outfit with a hint of boob, to give you a little sass, gorge!
Ok ladies so here’s one final look for this shirt, and it will set your mind racing about how to revamp your shirt wardrobe…. Yes, thats right I’m wearing it back to front! I couldn’t believe it myself till I was browsing through Pinterest and Instagram and seen this look constantly pop up. Would you be brave enough to try it? Not sure how practical it would be but it would make a good insta pic (that’s what it’s about, right?) 😏.
So whether your slaving away on the computer or going for drinks with the girls, a sleek oversized shirt will take you effortlessly from day to night. Thanks for reading my post.
